About

Overview

Lupe and Randy Alle-Corliss' book addresses the practical, hands-on field experience that every student in human services is required to explore. The authors go beyond providing a basic orientation to field course work to zero in on more in-depth skills that the advanced student must master, such as what models of therapy apply to different client populations. A journal-type format with an emphasis on self-awareness makes this book an especially useful tool, whether the student is in the classroom or out in the field in a human service agency.

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"In describing this book to a colleague, I would state that there is a very valuable text soon to be released that we would need to order. I believe this text will be a very valuable tool. I will definitely adopt this book because I believe that it includes well-written, accurate, valuable material for advanced human services students."

— Cynthia Vaske, LISW, Family Psychology Associates, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

"This book would provide students and instructors with a knowledge base, applied practice in fieldwork, and an emphasis on diversity. It is well written, researched and structured. The writing style is professional yet comfortable to read and flows smoothly from one topic to another. . . very pleased with the seventh chapter on ethical and legal issues which now includes information on Codes of Ethics. The problem related areas/vignettes provide a concrete application of ethical dilemmas and issues which are sometimes seen as abstract to students."

— Vicki Gardine Williams, Ferris State University
